Hg2 : The Hedonist

Medeu Skating Rink

Medeu, which sits in the mountains amongst beautiful pine forests just above Almaty (below Shymbulak), claims to be one of the highest Olympic-sized ice stadiums in the world, and over 100 speed skating world records were apparently set here. For something a little more sedate we recommend an evening skating session followed by a hot drink and a snack at the recently-opened Trader Vic’s Island Bar & Grill (see Drink). The season lasts from October to April, cold weather permitting, and a session on the rink costs 1,600 KZT for an adult. ‘Premium’ adult skates can be hired for two hours for 1,500 KZT. The cable car up to Shymbulak also departs from Medeu.
